that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
of a premium on staying focused. you have thousands of waves of questions from us. news cycles going by. what was the one thing if you had to keep your eye on the prize, day after day, what was it for you? >> well, in terms of feedia, there is still a huge power in television. local television. national television. people watch that. that's still how people get their news. that's part of it i think. the twitter piece, i'm sure this is the same for the romney team. there is a strategy around every day. every news pusher. what surrogates are saying on top radio. that was very big challeng >> and they're all tweeting. that typically news has. >> let me ask you. it felt at times the conversation was happening in that tiety character space. there was a big campaign going on. there's a turning point. somewhere in the campaign where the conversation over here got it wrongs. there one that you can think of? the convention speech was purposely done in the way it was done. it was not the most exciting speech or the president's race speech. as the most amazing speechlt however it gave the american peopl
to the polls tomorrow and have been voting early, how confident are you in the u.s. electoral system? here are the numbers to call. host: you can also find us online, using social media. send us a tweet using journal@c- span.org -- twitter.com/c- spanwj. or find a conversation on facebook. you can also e mail us, twitter.com/c-spanwj. how confident are you in the u.s. electoral system? we will bring some articles on how early voting is unfolding, but first, here is the headline from "usa today." 48% to 48%. "it comes down to turnout." host: what do you think about the u.s. electoral system as we head into the final day? voters go to the polls tomorrow. in "u.s. a today," the two candidates made their pitch for why you should vote for them. barack obama, mitt romney, writing in to "usa today," sharing their opinions. president obama says -- "do not give up, we have had a rise in jobs and a rebound in growth." governor romney says -- "we need a new beginning." looking at the headline of "the wall street journal," it gives us an idea of where the candidates were over the weekend. you can see
this problem. i do not think he has used the language only high-income people have to contribute on the revenue side. i do not think he has ruled out something which through based blogging would call for some contribution. >> the president will that out a dent in his budget he had this past year. >> that is right. but he has not in his current rhetoric. he does the said the problem should be solved just by high income taxpayers. >> let me ask about another component. capital gains and dividends. what about that side of it? the folks that what bloomberg and do a lot of investing are interested in what happens to capital gains. if you move it up to 20% or talk about higher figure, what would happen to investment in this country and how much money could degenerate? >> rates today are 50% for capital gains and dividends. it is already baked in the cake that is going to 18.8% for high- income taxpayers. they are often overlooked in this discussion but it is already a given. there has been a debate about whether to raise them further. i think your -- you're already seeing some evidence and. you will
to inherit. , the single greatest nation in the history of all mankind. i'm grateful you give us the opportunity. this has been limited. i'm grateful you gave me the opportunity to address you on these topics. i feel so passionately. i see this as an opportunity to do our part in this history. people say thank you for what you are doing. i feel guilty. i can never do for this country what it has done for me. i do not know where i would be of my parents have not come to america. i doubt whether i would be in a place like this. perhaps i would be like this. wrong with being a bar tender. i believe there are millions of people that want that for their children and grandchildren in america. our job is to make it easier for them to do that. and government can play a role. the governor is an example of what government can do in the state. i pray god will give me an opportunity to be part of that in washington d.c. thank you for the opportunity to speak to you on these topics. [applause] thank you. thank you. thank you. i am going to say, i am relieved there were no hecklers. the last t
that no one on around them cares because no one was asked of the rest of us. if we did not have someone in that war, or if we did not know someone in that war, it could be out of sight, out of mind. we were not asked to make any sacrifices. the war just went on, fought by these brave young american men and women, representing the cross section of this immigrant nation in terms of where they come from. that is immoral for a democratic society to allow that. we have an opportunity to begin to correct the course. welcome them home with a sign at the airport. make sure that they feel that they are a part of our civilian society. that they have an opportunity to find a job, be educated, raise their families, and have the kind of services so many of them need to deal with their physical wounds as well as their emotional wounds. we also have to remember that many of them are coming home whole wanted to make a contribution to their society. there are not victims. they are proud of what they do and with good reason. we open this session with two of our finest military men, two career officers wh
you just mentioned, but someone who basically has used elections in non-democratic ways. he is elected in but then takes seriously non-democratic measures internally. that is a very difficult situation to grapple with in terms of fundamentalists. >> from my european point of view, the so-called unipolar moment has led us in nato, led the west, led the united states, in my view, to over emphasize the possible use of the military. i think over the last decade we have been forced to acknowledge the fact the obligation of military force tends to solve, at best, military challenges, but if he were faced with a political problem, you need a political solution, which means more than just the military. that appears to me to be a growing consensus in our community. and that leads me to the first question about what the gentleman over there asked about development and the military. as a practitioner of diplomacy, i find that the last decade and have shut have taught us one clear lesson -- and a half should have taught us one clear lesson. it was not so difficult to get nato to go into the balkan
with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this past year was $1.1 trillion. if you are not going to raise taxes, what are the things you can cut to get close to erasing a $1.1 trillion deficit? >> we should be about $230 billion, but we have to look at agencies that were created that are not meeting up to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at these duplicative programs. we have got to move away from baseline budget to zero-based budget. >> the gao ha
. that is how i will conduct myself as president. i will bring us together. [cheers and applause] you know, i learned as governor achievements. usually returned in kind. i will not just represent one party. i represent one nation. [cheers and applause] every argument that he could think of, president obama has tried to convince you that these last four years have been a success. and so, his plan for the next four years is to take all of the ideas of the first four, and you is, the borrowing, obamacare, and just do them all over again. one party. i represent one nation. [cheers and applause] obamacare, and just do them all over again. he calls his plan forward, and i call it forewarned. [cheers and applause] that same path meansand i under0 trillion in debt at the end of four years. it means crippling unemployment continues. pay, depressed real estate values, and a depressed military. last week, president obama asked revenge. people to vote for love of country. [cheers and applause] america to a better place. we are one day away from a fresh start and one day away from a new beginning. my conv
. and unemployment and people living off the system that don't need to live off the system. because i used to work with the legislation. i was a lobbyist. with home health. and i got to see exactly what it was all about. if the people don't get out and vote and don't get out and voice their opinion, then they have nobody to blame but themselves. they cannot just sit back and say, okay, it is alright, but i am too lazy to get out and vote. you have to speak because every vote counts. it does not matter what color you are or who you are. it did not matter to me if obama got in office or mitt romney, as long as it was for the people. >> that was from mississippi. we want to show you the scene at the ronald reagan building. this is where the national journal will be holding their event "by the numbers." it should be beginning in just a minute. it will be led by ronald brownstein, a longtime contributor. elaine chao, former secretary of labor, will be participating. as you can see, it looks like they are almost getting ready to go. as we watched the room, we will take this call from leesburg, va. on ou
ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one goal, to defeat obama. that is gone. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. the american people want us to work together. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to balance the -- a balanced approach to everything. especially with the huge deficit and taxes are part of that. i can remember my first president after i had been selected as the democratic leader. i was so afraid, i really was. and as i do on occasion, off the cuff, i said i know how to fight. i know how to dance. i do not dance as well as i fight but i would much rather dense hair -- any time and i still feel that way. it is better to dance than to fight. it is better to work together ho. everything does not have to be a fight. that is how it has been the last couple of years. everyone should comprehend especially my senate frie
and a chaplain will get out. that was a template for what military families go through. the rest of us do not have that kind of fear. what we do have is not just the opportunity but the application to reach out to those families -- but the obligation to reach out to those families and these returning veterans. we could not have had two better representatives of the military services than general powell and general mcchrystal. they took ust -- us through our common oblication. -- obligation. thank you all very much. [applause] one of the many privileges in my life is the range of people i am able to meet. early on as these wars were not winding down, i have two young men talk to me about their mission. they had served in the military services. paul rieckhoff is the founder and executive director of iraq and afghanistan war veterans of america. the first really major organization to address the problems that bring us here. he did not have to go into the army. he did not have to serve in iraq, he did as a first lieutenant. he went to am worse. -- amhers -- amhurst. he served as an army firs
elections in your state. how you plan to vote, tell us why. 202-585-3880 -- democrats. 202-585-3881 -- republicans. 202-585-3882 -- in the 10th independents. you can send us a tweet @cspanwj. you can send us an e-mail at cspan@journal.org. or reach us on facebook -- facebook.com/cspan. here is a map. 46 democrats as far as the seats are concerned. a 43 seats now in a lot for republicans. any good to the top of states, they look at 11 toss ups. in ohio, virginia, wisconsin, those for some of t these dates toss ups. again, if you want to give us a little in the foot of the house and senate's races you plan on voting on come here are the numbers -- you can send us a tweet @cspanwj. this is the leader telegram. highlighting the race for the former the governor tommy thompson and tammy baldwin. the headline of -- in virginia, where sulman takes on a governor. -- a virginia congressman takes on a governor. tommy thompson on the ballot for 8, wasrst time since 199 almost knocked out in the qualifying round against three more conservative and vendor candidates. spending on outside
. there are a lot of us you think we're in a different place in our history, in this economy, and we have to take much more seriously the allocation of our resources and the impact of that tax code on investment and consumption in this country if we are going to have a piper the economy. that argument -- a vibrant economy. that would lead you to begin to this is much more serious about tax reform. let me add just to make the thing harbor, i think chris carter, dick is right, you will not just rate reductions as a way to pay for it. what you might look for is another stream of income, and one theory that is under discussion in some circles, we get a lot of analysis, the carbon tax, which does not have a prayer in hell kind of proposition. if we enabled factions in the congress to get other things they want as important, it might be that he could start something modestly that grows over time and in a sense kill two birds with constant. somebody might get killed in the process. >> that is right. what you look for is the least worst alternative, and that is something like that that may provide that.
.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think we can do a lot better. i think governor romney certainly has a program to do that, he and certainly in ohio we have proven that it can be done. host: let us go to judith, on the democratic line. you are on. caller:
is to work with these entities to assess the situation on the ground and to more so used this information to see what we can do better going forward. gnon clybrun, tonight at 8:00 eastern on c-span2. >> and look now at the defects edia.cial m benill heear from rattray. this is just over 45 minutes. >> ben rattray is the -- >> thank you. not exist 10 years ago and is now growing at a rapid pace. he is a graduate of stanford university. ben rattray has been listed in time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world congratulations on that, certainly. let us start with this before we talk about the details in the room. a lot of people not fully aware of the platform you've created. talk about what you created, what you did, and how it has evolved. >> great to be here. thank you. i initially wanted to be an investment banker. my senior year, i go home, and one of my other younger brothers says he is gay. he said the thing that was most painful for him was not people that were explicitly anti-gay, but the people that refuse to stand up against them. i reflected about what i wanted to d
of us who are former members think back nostalgically and how we relate to these things personally. i know tom and martin have great stories to tell and we're fortunate to have too great effective, insightful, and intelligent former members and we will moderate the elections. it went to make a couple of comments. we were on a panel for foreign diplomats. most of the campaign discussion was about obama and romney. someone asked me if there was no discussion of the congressional races. as a matter in america who is elected to congress, it really hit me. i think the answer is yes. as a former nine-term house member i was troubled by the question. i could understand it because most of the discussion concerns they presidential race. i am convinced that the founding fathers were making a clear statement when they said the first part of the organization of our government, the article one organization was congress. implicitly they felt in terms of trying to rebel against executive authority that it was an important branch of the government. we have this amazing election -- as it relates to co
reaction via tweets and through phone calls. we thank you for joining us today. here is the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the house will be in order. the chair lays before the house a communication from the speaker. the speaker's rooms, washington, d.c. november 6, 2012. i hereby appoint the honorable steven c. latourette to act as speaker pro tempore on this day. signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer today will be offered by our guest chaplain, the reverend dr. kirk erhardt, washington, d.c. the chaplain: let us pray. god who exists within each one of us and binds us together as one people, be with us on this election day as we exercise our responsibility to choose our leaders and set a trajectory into the future. let us be mindful and respectful of the views of those who vote for someone else. open our minds to realize that although we are a nation filled with diverse philosophies, our common motive is to make this country a fruitful and peace filled nation allowing all people the opportunity to
us a tweet @cspanwj. you can make a comment on our facebook page,.,com/cspan. and if you make the comment under the posting that says the president has been reelected. your thoughts, we will get to those quickly. here are some updated results. >> but this take a look at how you want. according to ap exit polls, hispanics and women carried him to victory in that state. in colorado, 77% of voters said the economy top of their list, but one and two blend george w. bush for the economy. and i welcome it shattered their 2008 early voting record -- in iowa, they shattered their 2008 early voting record. and the youth vote in wisconsin may have played a role. 8-29 year-olds favre obama. and ohio, more voters and the state than any other state said governor romney's policies would favor the rich. and the auto bailout played a big role in that state as well. moving on to florida, this one is not called yet 4 obama 1 mitt romney -- for obama or mitt romney. north carolina, the economy had a big impact. and also three out of five of voters said they would want some or all of the health-c
together which is focused on us. do not focus on what divides you as politicians, focus on us. i don't offer misplaced optimism often. when you are in washington you can get pessimistic really quick. but i think there is a pathway on immigration reform, a long-term debt reduction deal. continued education reform. that is really the test to the president and lead 76ers in the senate and the house. can they come together post election. for a period of time put your needs and the needs of the country first. i have a great deal of confidence that we will do that. [applause] >> thank you for having me back. it is great to be back at the university of delaware and thank you for coming. when we look at this election in 2012 republicans should not be diluted about this. this is a big night for the detectives. also look across the country in the u.s. senate. i will quote john mccain -- it is always dark before it is completely black. if you look at the election there are a couple of things that are just outstanding to focus on. the last presidential candidate who achieved 60% of the white vo
the president. even those that voted against us, most of them don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's an underestimating of your opponent's strength and the reality of how people view them. d there was a ridicule that i think -- i don't fully understand the impact it played in the election but i know it played a deep impact. and listen, as i said, our party has gone through that before which was a disbelief that president bush could be re-elected in 2004. people saw it differently. >> i think there are a number of legitimate policy criticisms of president obama. and there are issue that is he's advanced in the country that i just disagree with. however, if you go back to mitt romney's book, what was the title. no apology. inferring that the president runs around the world apologizing for america. not true. that never happened. the birther nonsense t. attempts to delegitimate mies the president that he wasn't born in hawaii, that he is on alien impter in the oval office, the conspiracy began 20 years ago. all of this deranged nonsense had a terrible impact not on the preside
. this is the number one thing thousands of business people said was the biggest barrier to investing in the u.s. we have got to upgrade our infrastructure, but we have got to focus on those that are economically important. we have got to understand the things that are driving up the cost of doing business. we know what those are, but we need a plan for going forward we need to create a framework for rapidly developing and the windfall. we have a path to energy independence. that is a bridge to renewable energy. if we can move to dass, we get tremendous benefits -- if we can move to gas, we can get tremendous and benefits. we have not been able to act on these things. >> let me jump to doug and steve and try to poke holes in this in a second. if we roll back time to just before the financial crisis, doug was out there bitching about already, but it is much worse. we are back to 156% of gdp. you are still in crisis mode. you have a private sector and events that led to a government response and a worsening of debt issues, so my question is why is it never on this list to get the private sector in con
of social media is you guys could discuss having an effect on our basic business. i mean i use -- we had a -- "ted" was our film, and seth mcfarland had a million followers before it ever came out. we were able to, our marketing group was able to, sort of along with seth, treat ted as his own personality. first he became a personality, then ultimately he maim -- became a star, whether it was through facebook or twitter the he had his own, ted had his own blog, and so before the film came out, we were able to create this personality that really never existed before. so when the movie came out, he had as much, ted had as much rogsnition as brad pitt. that's reality of it. so i think all the social media haves -- has a real impact on how we market things and sell our product. when you see, i forget, i watched it, jimmy, you telle, was a documentary, i guess justin bieber was discovered on youtube. >> right. >> i thought it was pretty extraordinary. i saw a young agent who saw this kid on youtube d went and convinced his mother to sign him. i think that's fantastic. when whether he -- when w
is more republican than it used to be. that's why before the election republicans were saying mitt romney was winning the independents he's going to win, that wasn't the case because the independents are already a republican group. host: from the 2008 elections when obama won 52% to john mcwane's 44% of those who identified themselves as independents. these candidates were trying to reach those independents out there but you're saying not all the independents are truly independents? guest: when people identify as independent they mean a lot of different things. some people mean i go back and forth, that's one group. other people mean i kstly vote for one party or the other but i don't think of myself as a member of that party. and so you really have to distinguish between how people identify themselves which is one thing and how people vote which is not necessarily the same thing. host: a couple of calls for you on the democratic line. caller: good morning. i just want to comment on the latino vote. i know you had a guest before and we could relate on. this a couple of points basically. h
you very much for being with us here. >> thank you. it is good to be with you. >> what are you looking for tuesday? what are you keeping an eye on? >> everyone in journalism is looking at ohio. just like the candidates are examining ohio very closely. we're also looking very carefully at virginia in colorado. we did talk about virginia. trying to figure out these very close state. iowa was a state we have been watching. ohio looks like it is going more gracefully toward president obama. we will see that holds up by election night. then all those building blocks are to build after that. we are doing the same sort of examination that everybody is doing. >> 1 poll shows this dead heat. democrats are saying the republicans are chasing fulls gold. >> you have to wonder if it is a little too late there is definitely a hurricane santeedy element to all of this. that could definitely be something that even though you do not want to politicize a disaster, you could be looking at a lot of democratic voters are not coming to the polls because they cannot are they have other things going on. that
best do that in the u.s. senate right now? i thought about that with my wife and children, and they have been such wonderful supporters, and i realize there is a gridlock. we cannot allow it to continue. we cannot have the nation we want if senate and congress is gridlock. i decided my experience as a tough times mayor and governor were an experience i could bring to the table to make good things happened in partnership with others. that was 19 months ago. we have trouble more than 60,000 miles. we have recruited more than 50,000 donors, including a deer i hit and killed, so we gave up a windshield process required and in the process. this campaign has taught me now more than ever we need people who know how to be partners rather than just partisans. we are americans but virginians furs. i learn this when i was the mayor. we knew who the democrats and republicans were. we were bipartisan. as a mayor, we were able to build schools common on -- to build schools, to cut crime, to clean up the river, and we did it by working together. as governor, you get a four-year term. min
the executive director of the latino partnership for conservative principles. he was the first chief of the u.s. office of citizenship, appointed by president george w. bush. alfonso is responsible for developing initiatives and programs to educate immigrants about the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and encourage their integration into american civic culture. brad bailey is the founder and ceo of texas immigration solutions. to 2011, he was the order of houston-area -- owner of houst on-area restaurants. his group seeks to develop conservative solutions to immigration policy but he served on the 2012 platform committee of the republican party of texas. richard land is the president of the southern baptist convention's official added to address social, moral, and ethical concerns, with a particular attention to impact on american families and their faith. he is also the editor of a national magazine dedicated to coverage of traditional religious values, christian ethics, and cultural trends. last but not least, my friend ramesh ponnuru, senior editor for "national review" magazine an
messaging can we use to reach them? how do we reach them? so you want to have a top to bottom review of what happened. you want to look at the technology they used to turn out the vote and say not only do we want to equal that in four years but surpass it. but if you delude yourself into believing that as romney and ryan said the election was determined for the reasons they said you don't have the to be able do that. so when you should be at this low moment taking your first steps to building a team to win the next election we're still going in the wrong direction and that's the bad side of it. >> video is king so it used to be not too long in politics if there was a front page story in the "new york times." this is how white water and water gait started it was an investigative story that it would drive the debate and coverage. if it doesn't have a video component it doesn't go anywhere because it doesn't get on news 24 hours a day and not shared and posted on facebook. so what made the 47% thing so powerful was there was a video component. and the best ads we ran in the campaign that were c
simple, as we wind down this presidential campaign, tell us who will win and why. host: as always, you can join us on facebook, send it to e-mail -- journal@c-span.org, or send us a tweet at twitter.com/c- spanwj. let's go the battleground states and the headlines, courtesy of the newseum this morning. from "the cleveland plain dealer," it is all about ohio. meanwhile, "the sunday tribune review," "pennsylvania still in play." pennsylvania is shown at a dead heat. 47% for the president, 47% for mitt romney. we will have live coverage of the mitt romney campaign appearance later today. in western pennsylvania, obama saying the president deserves another four years. from the tampa -- "tampa tribune," "paving the way to the presidency." the obama and romney campaign tosco on the attack in rallies. both the president and the vice- president are shown campaigning in the granite state in the final hours of this presidential campaign. just some of the headlines this morning. some of you are already weighing in on twitter and facebook about who will win and why. david says that it is mitt romn
himself into an innovative program at walter reed, where they ended up using acupuncture, medication, and other techniques to wean him of all the drugs he was on, and for this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own 2 feet. i really commend the military for allowing us to tell the story, both the good and the bad, but for recognizing the problem, that there is the problem of over medication, and that they are looking for outside the box ideas on how to fix it. that is sort of the whole basis of the film, the status quo is not working and we need to start looking for outside the box ideas. >> sunday night at 8:00 on "q&a". >> now, president obama's senior campaign staff on tuesday's election results. he spoke with reporters during a half hour conference call looking at a voter turnout, the role of outside money, and at the state of the republican party. >> thanks, everybody, for joining the call today. we have heard from many of you individually. we thought it might be easiest to just do this:what are some things together. it has been roughly 36 hours since
limited in trying to play stump the band and is us complicated questions about obscure subcommittees, but in general the macro narrative about these chairmanships is that the house republicans, way back in 1994 when they came out of the minority for the first time in 40 years, one of their reforms is to impose six-year term limits. they felt the old democratic system in place from the late 1950's through the early 1990's of seniority being paramount and these old white guys taking the gavels in their 50's and hanging on to them until their 70's was a bad idea. they imposed these limits and they have stuck. as a result there will be another generational turnover on the house side. not so much the senate side. >> what is fortunate point out is that there will be a certain amount of turnover. it is kind of like what happened in california. they just start running for other offices. you know that is one of the reasons the young mayor of los angeles. you know, it does inject a lost talent into positions you would not necessarily think of, but it does create problems because some of the pe
around the world. and you saw him during the 2012 u.s. campaign. he was campaign manager for the landslide reelection of california governor in 2006. before that a top political advice sor in the white house of george w. bush. he attended the university of delaware from 1988 to 1993. david plouffe crossed paths in schmidt in the late 1980's. he completed his political seasons degree and finned two years ago. he has completed two presidential bids. he was appointed as a senior advice sor to the president in the white house in 2011. he attended is the marks high school before serving in a wide viret of state and national political campaigns. i'm going to ask the two speakers this evening to speak and i had to decide who is going to go first and i decided to use a standard that anyone this this audience could mean and that is whoever has won the most recent presidential election gets to speak first. i think that's the fair enough thing to do so please welcome david plouffe and steve schmidt to the university of delaware. [applause] >> thank you for joining thus evening. it's
used in terms of "i didn't say i was going to raise your taxes, i didn't say 'let detroit go can you see- candidates in the future being that creative? [laughter] >> pass that one -- i will pass on that. >> also, the severity of it was intense on some of these issues, but in the context of our conversation, i am struck on the immigration thing how little of that occurred. the second debate, he used the word "magnet" and "amnesty." he doubled down, after softening in the fall with univision and so forth -- he reaffirmed that the signal. >> and he got in so much trouble with his idiotic "self- deport" comments that he re expanded in the debate. "we will make it so hard for you to live here that you will want to go home." >> if we have a quick question, yes, and then we will wrap up. >> thank you. what impact do you think the election will have on what has amounted to an endangered species, the moderate republican and moderate democrat? >> who? [laughter] it is interesting, the continued hollowing out of the center in congress, especially as you see the kind of split ticket voting in ma
and cast their ballots. many of us are thinking about election day this tuesday, november 6, but we should also spend some time thinking about november 7. that is the day we will know whether we made the right choice, whether we settled for more of the same disappointment and decline, or whether we took the first step down a new path that will deliver a real recovery and real change. when you step into the voting booth, i would ask you to think about the last four years. four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so very much, but he has fallen so very short. after all of the petty partisanship, all of the stand- offs and stalemates, 23 million americans are still struggling for work. on friday, the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. 47 million people are on food stamps. our economy is still on life support. and our country is $16 trillion in debt. we cannot afford four more years like the last four years, but that is exactly what president obama is offering. instead of developing a plan to address our serious challenges, his campaign is focused on phony issues. and instead of thinking bi
roundtable, andrew baumann, ed goeas, thank you for being with us. pollsters, they say, this is the truth, it has always been equal parts art and science. guest: i do not know if i agree with that. it is more science and art, that is why we are paid to do what we do, and we think they are generally pretty accurate. that is why you see polls from different sides of the aisle, some polls have been different results. i think that there is a little bit of hyperbole to call it four pollsters. maybe they are having the worst week. guest -- host of this poll shows mitt romney being ahead six points -- host: this poll shows mitt romney ahead by six points in florida, another one showing obama up by five points. [laughter] guest: same weekend? there are two polling firms out there, that there have been real questions about. going back to the point that andrew made, you have to make an assumption that some point. is turnout going to be like it was in 2004? which was even between the parties? or will it be more like 2008, with seven points for the democrats? my preference is to look in between. but
get us out of town but it will not get us out of the problem and it will hurt our economy. we cannot keep going on like that, we cannot set the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. the american people this week did give us a mandate to simply do the simple thing -- they elected us to lead. they gave us a mandate to work together to do the best for our country. we know what the best thing is, an agreement that sends the signal to our economy and to the world that after years of hunting on the fiscal challenges we face, -- punting the fiscal challenges we face, 2013 is going to be different. if we want to lift the cloud of debt hanging over our country. we will not solve the problem overnight. we certainly will not do it in a lame-duck session of conference -- congress. it will not be solved by taking a plunge of the fiscal cliff. what we can do is avoid it in a manner that serves as a catalyst for major solutions enacted in 2013 to begin to solve the problem. republican majority stands ready to work with the president to do what is best for our country. that is exactly what i to
and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a little better than president bush's margin in the 2004 election. our margin over republicans declined about 3.7% compared to 2008. 5.3 in non battleground states. millions of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, no
